Presentation Secondary School Castleisland held its College Awareness Week from November 20th to 28th.

The campaign promotes the benefits of a post-secondary school plan for all to support students to become ‘college ready’ and featuring local role models.

The school celebrated the week by holding a Dream Career event for which Transition Year students researched pathways to their dream careers and they presented their research.

Post-Secondary Education Plan

“We are delighted to be part of a nationwide campaign to promote the importance of post-secondary education. There are lots of options out there and College Awareness Week encourages people of all ages to consider further education as part of their future,” said a spokesperson.

College Awareness Week aims to inspire and inform all students about the importance of having a post-secondary education plan.

It advocates for students to have the choice to pursue the course best suited to their interests, abilities and dreams, whether that is a PLC qualification, an apprenticeship or a university degree.

Week’s Events Well Supported

The week’s events are supported by the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals and the Institute of Guidance Counsellors.

Many other organisations such as The National Parents Council Post-Primary, the Irish Union of Second Level Students and Irish Business Employers Confederation have backed the campaign.
